Thank you Tall Ship El Galeon for a fantastic visit to Portland!
Tall Ships Portland now prepares for our summer program, sending Maine youth on coastal sailing adventures with tall ships Oliver Hazard Perry, Fritha, and the schooner Alamar.
Teens in Maine have an endless array of possibilities to help pass their summer, but few things are more memorable or full of excitement than a week on board these towers of sail. While covering topics such as sail handling, navigation and marine biology, they also learn to live and work closely as a team; getting along in close quarters and trusting each other to reach their destination and take care of the vessel on her journey. Come sail with us and discover your own unique adventure!
The Spanish Tall Ship El Galeon came to Portland June 1st - 12th, 2016
One of the biggest attractions from Tall Ships Portland 2015 returned to Portland where more than 6,500 visitors spent as much time as they wanted seeing that ship up close on board. El Galeon opened daily for boarding and visitors learned about the role Spanish galleons played during the Age of Discovery.
Sponsors of the visit also enjoyed memorable private parties on board with music, food and the incredible ambiance.
